As he so often does, the UPS man made my day yesterday. My package from fabric.com came just as we got home from the gym last night.
This fabulous little bundle of happy has the fabric for my final skirt for the sew along as well as some knits for the second project. I'll keep them under wraps for now, since I like to have things to talk about in reserve. But they include some cheap but pretty knits for "practice" and three knits about which I am having vague ruminations involving some mommy/daughter outfit combo.
I'm much more excited about the second project. Let's see if my enthusiasm wanes once the reality of sewing knits sets in. I've only done one project with knits (Rylee's mouse costume) and it wasn't pretty. But it was also pre-serger so I'm hopeful it will go better.
First things first, though. The package also included this pretty plaid....
The lining fabric is poly/cotton, but has some kind of plastic coating. Should be interesting. Wish me luck!
